2008 smart fortwo passion 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)


Got the car three weeks ago, and it's been nothing but great fun. It is a little odd handling, the transmission is something you have to get used to! I really feel a true 5 speed manual would have been better. Also note that the tire pressure is 29 PSI in the front tires and that the rear tires are 36 PSI. They were all set at 36 PSI and the handling on the highway was poor tracking and that loose front end. Gas mpg has been 37-40 on and off state highways, interstate. Also city driving, stop and go. Car has only 650 miles and not broken in. The model is the passion coupe in yellow black tridon/black interior, extra gauges, fog lights.

Best Features

Great to find parking, can fit on the concrete islands. Getting in and out and all the attention the car gets.The rear windshield wiper only works in reverse mode not in drive, very odd!!

Worst Features

Needs a 5-6 speed manual transmission, better front tracking for US roads. Also better colour selection for the exterior, the red is orange!!
